I spent a few days in Dubrovnik during the height of summer. This picturesque walled town sits majestically on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. Over the horizon about 270 kilometres to the west is Italy and Bosnia can be reached just 5 kilometres inland to the east. Here you can see some sea kayaks departing to do a tour around the craggy sea cliffs which border the town. The water was perfectly suited for a swim, which is exactly how I spent the afternoon before walking the perimeter of the town wall at sunset (photos to come). The building shown here is the 11th century Fort Lovrijenac which you can tour.

love the blues in this shot! It makes the detail and grey tones of the rocks and walls stand out so attractively. Your usual high standard of execution and a beautifully compelling presentation.
Have a good week - Brian.

An impressive fortress that looks fairly modern. The small red boats add a nice part of the picture too.

Hi Matt, a scenic location well presented. compostion works well, with the castle looking out over the water, forming a good diagonal. Square-ish format works well too. cheers, Steve

Hi Matt, You have travelled to some great new places since we communicated before. The level horizon is good as are the various blues well captured. The off-set castle is really a postcard image and has encouraged me to see this place one day. TFS. Murray
